Support Your Local Brewer

My beer twitter feed is all Stone Brewing this afternoon.  Stone is suing MolsonCoors over the branding of Keystone.  According to the West Coaster:

The suit alleges that multi-national “Big Beer” conglomerate MillerCoors is purposely trying to create confusion in the marketplace with a recent rebranding of the products in Keystone’s portfolio. A prime example are 12-ounce cans, which break the word “Keystone” into two words on separate lines that read “Key” and “Stone” (which appear in all capital letters). When rotated a certain way, all that is visible is the word Stone.
 Here is Stone's Greg Koch explaining the lawsuit:

I support Stone as it defends its name.  I plan to buy some Stone beer this week to contribute to Stone's legal defense fund.

Eppig's Waterfront Adventure

Eppig Brewing is opening its Point Loma tasting room tomorrow, February 9th, 2018.  Located on the waterfront, behind Point Loma Seafoods and within skipping distance to Mitch's Seafood, the tasting room offers wraparound views of the San Diego Bay and Point Loma's sport fishing boats.  Here are articles from the West Coaster, Eater, and even the OB Rag on Eppig and its new location.  The Eater article has some great pictures that highlight Eppig's waterfront location, and most importantly show that Eppig has a crowler machine.
